Overall Impression: Excellent

My 4th successful bull elk hunt (black powder & rifle) with Elk Basin Outfitters (2001, 2003, 2007 & 2008). These folks work ‘HARD’ to put clients on game. Camp atmosphere has ALWAYS been pleasant. This truly is a wilderness hunting experience and every year brings its own variables of weather, moon phase, high/low winter game survival rates, and hunting pressure. All equipment and gear must come in on horse back; if you are expecting the Holiday Inn with room service look elsewhere. I recommend Dan Toothaker and his crew WITHOUT reservation. At 72 I was not in the best of shape for the mountains this year but Elk Basin Outfitters still made it happen! Most seasoned elk hunters realize that elk constantly move about but do have areas they frequent and Dan’s people begin by putting clients (the one’s who are capable and willing) into these areas. No solicitation has been made to me to post this reference; I am a paying client!
